The National Agricultural Workers Survey
The National Agricultural Workers Survey (NAWS) is an employment-based, random survey of the demographic, employment, and health characteristics of the U.S. crop labor force. The information is obtained directly from farm workers through face-to-face interviews. Since 1988, when the survey began, nearly 50,000 workers have been interviewed.
Workers are located at their farm job sites. During the initial contact, arrangements are made to interview the respondent at home or at another location convenient to the respondent. Depending on the information needs and resources of the various Federal agencies that use NAWS data, between 1,500 and 4,000 workers are interviewed each year.
Topics include composition and demographic characteristics of the household, race and ethnicity, primary language, ability to read and speak English, occupation, periods of unemployment, time spent outside of the United States, hourly earnings, health insurance, workers compensation and unemployment insurance, availability of water and toilets, medical history, use of medical services, safety training, housing, income, assets, use of social services, and legal status.
